Default Noel Devine: Watch this highschooler run!



Wow...this kid's amazing! I mean, sure, there's some sorry ass tackling going on there, but this kid looks like he'll smoke anyone that's placed in front of him!

Depending on who's writing the articles, Devine either has some deep seated character issues or is a saint amongst high schoolers.

I don't see him going anywhere but Miami.

The kid looks to have off the charts talent. I'd be a bit concerned about media like this combined with his attitude though. Seems like TO might be a role model for him judging by his 'hype" comment at the end of the video... Yeah, Miami would probably be a good fit.

I also noticed that there is some pretty decent, discplined blocking going on in those films for a high school team. Course it looks like this guy would do fine without any blockers at this level.

I wouldn't be too concerned about his attitude. He is afterall, a highschooler. He's not at his most mature level. That should come with time. And yes, he had some awesome blockers.

He's not at his most mature level.

His two kids speak to that.

yikes. Being at the opposite corner of the country, I know nothing more about this kid than what I have read and seen in this forum today. But I guess anytime I see this much hype about someone in high school it concerns me. I worry about the potential for someone like this to have no social boundaries set for him because people around him will treat him like a superstar. You know that his peers are going to do that. I just hope the adults in his life don't.

There are occasional exceptions to this. Lebron James seems to have turned out alright in spite of having perhaps the most high school hype of any athlete in history. But I think there are a lot of talented kids out there who are thinking they are certain to be millionaire athletes when they are only 16. I think people who treat them as such do them an incredible disservice.

Here is his wikipedia entry:
Quote:
Noel Devine (1988) is a high school American football running back and a top prospect in the 2007 NCAA recruiting season.

Noel Devine was adopted by NFL cornerback Deion Sanders. Noel plays high school in Florida at North Fort Myers High School, where Deion played in 1985. Noel averaged 11.1 YPC as a running back his junior year. Noel recently moved to Prosper High School in Texas where he lived with Deion. But after a few weeks, returned to North Fort Myers. He is no longer adopted by Deion Sanders. His video clips can be found at sunshinpreps.net.
Sure makes me curious to know more about the whole Deion Sanders thing.
